Discover strategies for recognizing and exploring chain migration in your family.

    Presented by Joe Hunter, sponsored by the Irish Genealogical Society International.

    Description:
    Researching the specific location of Irish Ancestors is challenging. The creative use of online databases, coupled with free software, affords researchers the opportunity to pinpoint townlands and the locations where distant ancestors actually lived and worked.

    For researchers who plan on visiting Ireland, and even those who may not, the ability to see the actual location can provide important research insight, and even stories. Joe has been researching his family history for the last 24 years, having traced all (16) of his 2X great grandparents back to Ireland. Joe has utilized his research to obtain dual citizenship with Ireland, and participated in a research trip with New England Historic Genealogy Society (NHGS) to the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) in 2012.

    About the Speaker:
    Joe has a certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University (OL29), a certificate of completion in the ProGen 50 Study Group, and is currently on the Board of the Greater Philadelphia Area Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (GPAC-APG). He is also the Presentation Coordinator for The Main Line Genealogy Club (MLGC), the Distance Member Coordinator of The Irish Ancestral Research Association (TIARA), and is a volunteer genealogist for the Vineland Historical & Antiquarian Society (VHAS).

    On most days, Joe can be found pursuing some forgotten ancestor in an obscure townland in Ireland. As his wife likes to say, “Joe, you have more dead friends than living ones”. Genealogy is the gift that keeps on giving. So, there is no time to waste!

    Presented by Annette Burke Lyttle, sponsored by the Irish Genealogical Society International.

    Description:
    Movement from the United States to Canada was unrestricted and unrecorded until April 1908. The U.S. only began recording the entry of Canadians along its northern border in 1894. Before that, many thousands of people, including our Celtic ances-tors, lived cross-border lives without visas, work permits, passports, or immigration records. Learn how to find these elusive ancestors.
